Painting #1 Intuitive abstract
Oh what fun it is to discover that painting intuitively is my true calling. I brushed on a yellow, red and several blues, spayed and then trusted that my painting would appear. I know this sounds crazy but I knew instinctively how to sculpt this piece.
Painting #2 Intuitive abstract
The photo doesn’t do this particular justice. Originally the orientation was one way but as I turned it around, I liked this one. Again, I followed my intuition to the very last. Paintings #1and #2 were painted on Saunders waterford hotpress. I am planning on purchasing more of this paper, it is simply divine working with it. I say working with it rather than on because it seemed like the paper and I were working as a team.
Painting #3 imaginescape
I started this one as an intuitive piece and added the crags as an superimposed image, kind of cool if I must say.
Painting #4 autumn colors in Sierra County
I had been struggling a bit with my reality paintings and was growing frustrated with them. I decided to let it rip with abstracting this scene.
Painting #5 Autumn colors in Sierra County
This one was painted before the previous one and was tighter. I was getting lost in the rocks and that prompted the looser version.
Painting #5 North Yuba past Downieville
One of the tighter paintings while I was in one of my angst over “what the heck should I be doing!?” Haha typical vicious cycle of mine.
Painting #6 abstract
Oh boy, I loved painting this abstract. I was getting to the point that I needed to calm myself down with a little abstraction. It worked.
Painting #7 crazy wild abstract
Oh yeah, so fun to let go and see what happens with my intuition. I am still unsure about that circular shape but then someone pointed out to me that it is the black hole! I never know where my intuition will take me, it is never boring.
Until next time, take time to enjoy what makes you happy, life is short.
